Rain expected until Wednesday, with weekend temperature drop

Sunday, November 19, 2017

The next three days will witness scattered mid-range showers followed by a temperature drop at the weekend, a meteorologist suggested on Sunday. The rains, which will reach their peak on Tuesday, are a result of low surface pressure arriving from Europe which will be focused over the eastern Mediterranean region, the Meteorological Department's Abdulazeez Al-Qarawi told KUNA. The spread of the Sudan low pressure zone to the southwestern regions of the Arabian Peninsula met by low upper atmospheric pressure and the polar jet stream are other factors, added Al-Qarawi. As for the state of the sea, he said it might lead to a rise in waves as winds transform from medium northwesterly to active as of Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Kuwaiti authorities have announced their readiness to contain the expected downpour. These preparations include maintenance works for water pumps and the distribution of inflatable rescue boats in areas where the water is expected to be concentrated, said Kuwait Fire Service Directorate Media Relations and Press head Khaleel Al-Ameer.

Al-Ameer advised home owners to unclog their drains and to make sure that their electrical wiring is not exposed and safety installations are in full working order. KFSD is also ready to respond to any emergency situation that may arise through its 112 emergency hotline, he added.

@Rajan : First wake up from sleep, wash your face, be conscious and then write.

Excellent work by Kuwait Police. I think such tough measures can only ensure adherence to traffic rules. Still, we find that there are people who flout the rules. As time goes by, I hope that these measures continue.
However, it is only when people are conscious about the need for such rules and adhere sincerely to the traffic laws, that untoward incidents can be reduced
